The new one I saw at that price seems to be gone.... I would gather someone bought one, but never opened it. So not "officially" new - but close to it.
I don't see anything at techforless.com now - am I missing something?
Where did you see an I8 for $36 shipped?
I thought I saw that the I8 (unlike the I3.5 and Chumby) included WMA support?
The goal is to listen to webstreams which uses WMA (some use WMV, even though it's just audio).
I noticed that some are on yourmuze - which transcodes to AAC+ -Would that work? But again, that's only for some of the statoins.
For a couple of them, the URLs change daily, I actually have a webserver (on a Raspberry Pi) which creates a playlist, so that my Squeezebox Radio can get at them. I use curl / perl and/or sed to create the playlist. I would need to do that for the other feeds. Would I be able to do the same on the unit itself? (The RaspPi won't have enough power to transcode by itself). Also, one of the thoughts was to set this up for a relative.
